I believe there is a PUA term for this ( re-imaging?) in which you display a different side of you from what you usually protray.
For instance lets say you are talking to an HB, seeing her, calling/texting and you always come off as the fun , funny, optimistic happy guy in which you do a lot of the talking. Would it be seductive to surprise this person by showing another side that is completely contradictory to this....show a mysterious streak of silence or short responses, play the reclusive mysterious person that isnt so forthcoming with everything on your mind, maybe even show a little bit of a temper or mean streak,
From what I read in a non-PUA book, the purpose of this is to show you are a dynamic person ( there is more to you than what she just thinks of you) ....people crave and get excited by novelty and the predictable is dull........ BUT.....
On the flipside.....what if there is an HB you are seeing that is pretty much the type that likes nice guys who are funny.....would a mean or sad disposition out of nowhere freak her out? Question whether this new side is his "real side" and the rest is a cover?
We are all complex people, so we all have different sides to us ( some are just more chill than others and some tend to be more tempermental), but my question is whether this could potentially scare someone off early on ( keep in mind that the seduction level on this HB is better than average to where she shows definite interest but not astronomical to the point where I have her wrapped around my finger).
Would like to hear your guys thoughts, theories, and experiences ( good and bad) with this type of thing.
